Raytheon Signs Deal with Air Force for More Miniature Air Launch Decoys

Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) claimed a $96.7 million deal from the Air Force for a third production lot of the Miniature Air Launched Decoy (MALD).

According to the firm, “MALD is a state-of-the-art, low-cost, decoy flight vehicle that is modular, air-launched and programmable. It weighs less than 300 pounds and has a range of approximately 500 nautical miles (about 575 statute miles).”

“MALD protects aircrew and their aircraft by mimicking the signatures and combat flight profiles of U.S. and allied aircraft, ” said Ken Watson, the U.S. Air Force’s MALD program manager. “This contract delivers additional capabilities to the combatant commanders by giving them more options to shape the battlespace.”
